The doors open at 6 p.m. Guests can view the ongoing exhibit of Kesl’s work. At 6:30 p.m. the 2013 SF Spring Arts Festival poster, featuring Kesl’s art, will be unveiled in the lobby. Refreshments will be served. The entire event is free and open to the public.

At 7 p.m. “Hello World” features a jazz concert by the Friends of Lennie.

In addition to this year’s poster, reprints of the two previous Spring Arts posters designed by Kesl will also be available. The 2013 poster and the two reprints cost $20 each, or all three for $50. They will be available at “Hello World,” online at, and at the SF Spring Arts Festival.
